Ever wondered how to make those perfectly round Egg Patties for breakfast sandwiches that Dunkin’ Donuts or McDonald’s serve? This is the way to make Baked Egg Patties for sandwiches, that’s freezable and Restaurant quality! 

I’m totally loving this way of making eggs for sandwiches! The eggs turn out moist and this english muffin tin gives you a batch-full! Fast-food chains obviously use commercial equipment in preparing their foods but with this tin you can achieve those restaurant style egg patties, that I’ve been wanting to recreate! It’s the perfect way to make a batch of eggs, all at one time shaped like an egg patty. They turn out super moist from the water and can easily be made ahead for freezer-friendly breakfast sandwiches! After trying this cooking method, you may just not want to fry eggs anymore, it’s really that easy!

    When reheated they were rubbery. I neglected to add water while initially baking. Could this be the cause?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Catherine, it sounds like they may have been over baked. I think the water works as a moistening agent kind of like milk with scramble eggs so I wouldn’t omit that. Try baking for a couple minutes less or just until yolks set and add some liquid to moisten the egg patty.

    • Cheryl Moore

    After baking the eggs do I let them cool then can I put them in a freezer bag n freeze them then microwave them when I want one??

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      After cooling try to flash freeze on a big tray covered with parchment paper then stack into a zip-loc bag and freeze. To eat just microwave in 30 second intervals to see where you like it.

    • Jan Garber

    I was buying frozen scrambled egg patties at Walmart but they stopped carrying them. I bet this would work for making patties that way too.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You could but it would probably be easier to bake a portion of scrambled eggs in one large pan instead and then just cutting it into circles because pouring scrambled eggs into the limited mold space can not only take multiple batches to bake but can get messy as scrambled eggs can be quite slimy to work with, especially dividing into portions–if that makes sense…

    • Susan

    How do you then warm them up for reheating?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You can layer as many egg patties that you need into a bowl and add 2 tbsp of water for each egg. Cover with paper towel or plastic wrap and microwave until warm (30-sec -1 min depending on how many eggs you heat up.)

    • Alena

    Wow, that’s a great idea to use the muffin molds! Love eggs for breakfast!

    • Allie
